The last time I got tires, the local tire store offered a Nitrogen 
fill for $5/tire, guaranteed for the life of the tire.  You had to 
go back to them for refills, and there may have been other 
conditions (like having them check the tire pressure every x 
weeks). I politely passed on it, since I knew I'd need air while 
away from their store.
